Mine was a blowout on a bridge Brake pad, from the roadway, went through the sidewall. It was still in the tire, when I brought it to Firestone.jiobao said:I have only had to make a road side change once a while back - of course during one of the worst rain and thunderstorms we have ever had - and at 11:00 PM, on a freeway, while my girlfriend was waiting for me to pick her up from work
That can be scary on a trailer thats for sure. Glad everyone was ok. And yes they are expensive. Do to the fact they have extra plys in the tire like a light truck tire.mustangaretuff said:Tough break on the tire.... I was pulling a boat last year and the tire on the trailer gave out at 80. Nearly put me and the crew in a ditch, the spare gave out about 2 days later.... PS. trailer tires are expensive.
Ain't that the truth (about new!). Put new BFG's (32x11.50) on my 99 F150 (about $150 per)...2 days later, I ran over the edge of the drainage pipe in my boyfriend's driveway. :doh: Put a nice inch long slice on the inside of the front tire. Not too deep, thankfully! We swapped the front with the rear just in case, though!pcfrisch said:You know that only happens when things are new don't you?? I bought new tires for my wife's car, a week later it picket up a nail. I got a rock chip on my Stang windsheild when it was only a couple weeks old :weeps
Of course I never had a flat and the windshield is in perfect condition on my 97 pickup :laughlitt
